While continuing my thoughts about maybe getting another smaller pocket camera, I decided that I better take another look at my iPhone SE camera. I made the first image of the Mimosa bloom. I then cropped out a section, then enhanced it using LR which doubled the pixel dimensions. Since that was still not a large enough image, I then used ON1 to increase the size up to 3000 x 3000 pixels. The quality of the crop-zoomed image amazed me. It definitely works well enough for up-close images in good light.
Next I made a long distance view of the pond as seen from my porch. I then performed the same sequence of cropping, enhancing, and enlarging that I used on the Mimosa bloom. You can see the results below. The results were not as good but not bad, considering the degree of cropping, etc.
